Rhode Island College recently opened an outdoor Bee Education Center, which will serve as a hub for programming to promote the honeybee’s crucial role in crop production and solutions to the alarming decline of the U.S. honeybee population.

They pollinate nuts, fruits, and vegetables. The honeybee population has declined dramatically nationwide by more than 50 percent over the last 75 years.
Rhode Island’s very first food business incubator opens officially Thursday in Warren. The program, called Hope and Main, helps local culinary companies get on their feet.
Companies accepted into the non-profit program get use of three full sized industrial kitchens, for rent at below market rates. They're located at the program’s headquarters; an old school building in Warren. The idea is to make it easier for culinary business by keeping down the high initial investment of equipping a commercial kitchen. Currently businesses are staying for their first two to three years.
